Dear Members,


     While reconvening in-person gatherings is still undecided, please know that we are doing everything we can to prioritize the services and programs that you love and enjoy during this time of social distancing. We greatly value your strong support and interest in all that we do and are looking forward to seeing you in the very near future.

     Last April we had planned to present a program about Frank Duveneck, an American Master and perhaps the most influential painter in Cincinnati’s history. But that was not to be. In its place we now have the opportunity to engage with you in a forty-minute on-line virtual tour. Narrated and produced by Julie Aronson and the Cincinnati Art Museum, this is an inspiring journey through the history of Duveneck’s brilliant career as a painter, printmaker, and charismatic teacher.

     We are very pleased to offer this rich presentation in the spirit of our Schoolhouse gatherings. With that in mind, perhaps pouring a glass of wine and settling into a comfortable chair will set the stage for enjoying this special experience.  Please follow this link to view the Duveneck Program.

     Additionally, Boone County Public Library is hosting a virtual event on the Beverly Hills Supper Club on Tuesday, March 2 at 6:30 p.m.  Some of you may remember Mr. Robert Webster who presented this topic based on his book: The Beverly Hills Supper Club: The Untold Story Behind Kentucky’s  Worst Tragedy, to the Historical Society in April, 2018 It was a fascinating presentation about greed, the Mafia, and government cover-ups.  Registration for this virtual event is required, please follow this link to register:  Beverly Hills Supper Club Tragedy

     Our Spring programs will be starting soon with virtual tours of fascinating local companies and houses, so stay tuned for more details.


Thank you and enjoy!
